to order. as we are all well aware of the health care law acquires businesses that employ 50 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees to offer health insurance or pay an employer mandate penalty for tax. a critical issue is the definition of employee. but equally important is the issue of which and how many employees are attributed to the business. the answer may be simple for one business with a single owner. however when an individual shares ownership of multiple entities or when a business has multiple owners, the answer is less clear. today we will examine the process of determining whether businesses are considered a single or multiple entities under the health care law, which requires business owners to aggregate employees and could suggest the business from the obamacare employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses with 20 or more employees: at least 10% of one or more other businesses. to determine if the threshold of 50 or more employees has been met in these situations the health care law utilizes the interna
